A Need For









Obstetric Care That Is Safer and More Efficient

Medical errors on Labor & Delivery Units are driven by:

  • Lack of situational awareness
  • Failure to manage patients in accordance with evidence-based best practices

Our software is designed to tackle both.

riskLD Makes Obstetric Guidelines More Accessible

riskLD provides a proprietary Graphical User Interface that:

Improves Situational Awareness

Unit-Level View

  • Provides Alerts
  • Facilitates allocation of resources by unit leadership
  • Enables remote monitoring of labor floors at outlying/community hospitals

Patient-Level View

  • Continuously monitors maternal and fetal parameters
  • Diagnoses high-risk conditions
  • Generates alerts for the clinical team
  • Provides evidence-based decision support in the form of management checklists

Ensures Best Practices

  • Alerts to medical comorbidities and high-risk situations
  • Clinical decision support is based on a set of Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) developed at the
    University Hospitals System, Cleveland, Ohio
  • CPGs shown to reduce Serious Safety Events 92% across UH system over 10 years
  • 93% reduction in obstetric litigation costs for the health system:

Serious Safety Events (Maternal + Neonatal) Over 10 Years

Obstetric Malpractice Litigation Cost Reduction Over 10 Years

Creates Shared Mental Models Across Disciplines

  • Improves handoffs of care among nurses and physicians
  • Enables quick assessment of acuity of patients on labor & delivery
  • Allows staff to convene and create care plans

In summary, the riskLD system takes a large base of actionable knowledge and advances it by consolidating real-time monitoring, intelligent diagnosis matching, alerting, and instantaneous checklists to provide an assistant that is there for the clinical team around the clock. This application improves the communication among providers and helps prevent medical errors and adverse outcomes.
